The newest version of Chrome (version 46) introduced a new callback function that allows JavaScript developers to execute background code while the user is idle (for instance reading an article). This feature opens new opportunities for applications to do some creative things.

This is one of the main topics discussed by Manuel Lemos and Arturs Sosins that received Artem Salpagarov from Countly in the episode 58 of the Lately in JavaScript podcast.

They also talked about the frontend testing with CasperJS, building MVC applications without HTML Templates using Mithril, Node.js 4.0 released as a merge with io.js among other interesting JavaScript discussions.

Listen to the podcast now, or watch the hangout video to learn more about these and other interesting JavaScript topics.
